Next step for Scribes: Med School

Posted by Sarah de Verges on Jul 14, 2016 4:56:22 PM

Ask a former scribe what helped them most through their first year in med school or PA school, and you're likely to hear "being a scribe, of course!" At PhysAssist Scribes, we try to help all of our scribes achieve their healthcare career goals, be it advanced education or a job in the medical arena.

This year, we are so pleased that more than 1,175 PhysAssist Scribes have moved on into medical, PA or nursing programs. That's nearly half of all of our scribes! We are excited to see these young stars make the next step into bright futures as medical providers.
